CARIGARA, Leyte – To accommodate greater number of motorists, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Leyte Second district engineering office is presently widening the P75 million worth of Carigara bridge in Carigara, Leyte.

According to District Engineer Gerald Pacanan, the 106.25 meters bridge with a width of 9.4 meters is targeted to be completed before the year ends.

The bridge is being widened from two lanes to four lanes to accommodate and provide a safer travel to both locals and tourists going to and from Tacloban City to Ormoc City.

“With the region’s past experiences on calamities, we see the need to modify this bridge to make it more resistant to seismic activity or ground motion and to conform to the latest DPWH bridge-design standards with enhanced load-bearing capacity,” he added.

For 2019, Leyte 2 is tasked to implement 87 projects worth P1.57 billion covering road and bridge improvement projects and construction of other government facilities.
